This document was developed by Environment – People – Law within the framework of the project Promotion of European Standards of Environmental Impact Assessment in Ukraine in 2013. The analytical document brings together requirements of three international instruments in the field of environmental impact assessment, including those on transboundary procedures and public participation. Despite the fact that the project was implemented for the purposes of Ukraine, the proposed document is also applicable to any other country, working on the implementation of the Espoo and Aarhus Convention, as well as seeking to adapt the EU Directive on EIA. The document was prepared by Prof. Jerzy Jendroska originally in English and later translated into Russian by EPL. Please find the document in RUS and ENG.
